HBO's Game of Thrones is closely followed by dystopian sci-fi series The Handmaid's Tale, which gained 20 nominations and won top drama previous year.

As a matter of fact, Netflix beat out HBO for the first time in almost 20 years for the most Emmy nominations. Team TVLine already weighed in with its dream Emmy nominees, but time will tell whether any of our picks actually get the love they deserve.

Bruce Miller, executive producer of "The Handmaid's Tale", acknowledged that the show's vision of a theocracy where women are treated as property was hard to watch.

Netflix's GLOW was nominated for Best Comedy Series while Betty Gilpin, who portrays Debbie on the series, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress In a Comedy.

Last year, after "The Handmaid's Tale" helped Hulu break into the Emmy race in its biggest way yet, Craig Erwich, head of content at the streamer, revealed to Variety that their strategy of looking for shows that have "a big world, feel relevant and feel like television events" had paid off.

In particular, Game of Thrones led the genre pack with a whopping 22 nominations in categories like Outstanding Drama Series, Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, and Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Lead actress in a drama series: Claire Foy (The Crown); Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black); Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale); Sandra Oh (Killing Eve); Keri Russell (The Americans) and Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld). Game Of Thrones was the dominant series.

NBC - anchored by "Saturday Night Live" and "This is Us" - ranked third overall, garnering 78 Emmy bids, followed by the FX network, with 50. GLOW received eight additional nominations in various categories.

The actresses who squeezed Kidman and Watts out of the supporting actress in a limited series category were: Adina Porter (American Horror Story: Cult); Penelope Cruz and Judith Light (The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story); Letitia Wright (Black Museum); Merritt Wever (Godless); and Sara Bareilles (Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert).

The top comedy nominee is Donald Glover's Atlanta, with 16.

The 70 annual Emmy Awards air September 17 on NBC.
